Jon Anderson of the Phenoms dropped by the Big League Wiffle Ball Lounge with a little souvenir in hand to chat about everything wiffle. And get this… Nick Benas and Jared Verrillo sponsored Jon to go play wiffle in Vegas! Now I’m asking where my sponsorship is – I wanna go to Vegas too Check out what Jon had to say about Vegas, NCT, and who he’s looking forward to playing in Vegas!
Zach is back! The Big, Bad, Mean(?) Zach Goodman just couldn’t get enough of the Big League Wiffle Ball Show and host Charissa Cowart so he had to come back for a second helping. This time he talked about the yard league and where he thinks Man Bear Pig stands in the Top 10. Watch to find out if Zach even puts the tournament team in the Top 10.
Finally Moonshot puts out a bat for the medium pitch wiffler. This bat has everything your yellow lacks. The “Carbon Matrix” technology incorporated into the barrel increases performance and durability as well as adds even weight distribution. This bat has the pop yellows lack. They’re also longer than yellows. Up to 36″. They come with an Easton synthetic leather grip which is a big upgrade from yellow plastic. It comes in whatever color you want and with your team name embroider on it. This is the bat of the serious wiffler. With GSWL already using it in their league and rumors swirling within BLWB headquarters that they’re considering it’s use in 2010, Moonshot may be on the fast track to increasing their notoriety within the sport. Once you’ve used a Moonshot you’ll agree the bat sells itself. I’ve used this bat for years but only in fast pitch. I’ve always wanted an opportunity to use it at a medium pitch event. Maybe the diameter as it was gave too much of an advantage, but now that it’s almost identical to a yellow in size, only thing left to do is order it. They may be a little pricey but you get what you pay for and these bats are worth every penny. Even the most modest wiffler who rarely competes in tournaments should have one for that day in the backyard with family and friends, when he can pull it out and say, how sick is this thing. Amaznig right. Yeah, it’s a WIFFLE ball bat!!
They took the Bronze medal in the Connecticut State Nutmeg Games last year, they have quite a few wins under their belt, they have their eye on the GOLD this year, and tonight they were one man short – they are the TRIPLE THREAT: Blue Razrs. Kevin, Dave, and Tyler! (We made sure to give Joe aka “Whitey” a very special hello.) The Triple Threat showed Big League Wiffle Ball Host Charissa Cowart how they scuff and knife their balls to prepare for games. They also promised to make a special one for her… Find out what it is right now by watching the show!
Tonight on the Big League Wiffle Ball Show, Charissa Cowart had the honor of not only hosting two very enthusiastic and “energetic” guys but also one very thirsty guy. Justin Waxman and Eric Pilon Bignell, co-founders of Launchgum, are big wiffle ball fans… and they kinda like that Nick Benas kid. So they came over to the Big League Wiffle Ball Skype Studios and spent about 30 minutes hanging out with Charissa. While doing that – they had a little game planned – every time Charissa said “Big League” or “Pilon Bignell,” Eric had to take a shot. And well, let’s just say, she said them more than once. Watch the video to see how many shots Eric had to take.
Nick Amato showed up at the Big League Wiffle Ball Show ready to REPRESENT for Krusty’s Kids… and he did a darn good job of it! Nick is in charge of the July 25th tournament (along with Jack Caton) at Medway Massachusetts for Big League Wiffle Ball – and he invited our host Charissa Cowart to make a grand appearance – wonder if she will?
Nick was coerced into trying Pert Plus… why? Watch to find out. And finally, someone made a SPECIAL Appearance, he just couldn’t stand not being on the show… I’m sure you can guess who that was – Nick Benas
He stands at a whopping 130 lbs and can hit one out of the park! Wiffleball that is… don’t expect the same from baseball and Zach Goodman. Goodman, of ManBearPig stopped by the Big League Wiffle Ball Skype studios to chat with Charissa Cowart about, Harry Potter, Golden Stick Wiffleball, Big League Wiffle Ball and a few other curve ball questions that I threw at him. Goodman was a good sport and hit this interview out of the park!
Baring his tattoo sleeves and all dressed up in his tuxedo tee, Mark Spellman (aka Sparky) sat down with Charissa Cowart to talk about the style of wiffle ball. Spellman, GSWL co-founder, says wiffle ball has typically had a reputation for being nerdy and a sport for kids. Well, he set that record straight with his “too cool for you” attitude and talked about the new clothing lines debuting to help boost the fashion sense of wiffle ball. If you don’t believe me, take a look for yourself! He even managed to crack a few jokes… just a few.
Rob Piervinanzi (aka Wiffman), a 7-year veteran of wiffle ball, dropped by the Big League Wiffle Ball Show’s Skype studios to chat with Charissa Cowart about what else… Wiffle Ball! Wiffman is the Director of the NY Region for Golden Stick Wiffleball League and talked about the big Jamboree that’s just around the corner plus the future of wiffle ball, with or without the famous Wiffman.
Watch the video to find out what his favorite thing is about wiffle ball, how he got the name Wiffman and how HE describes Nick Benas and Jared Verrillo.
